FREE Dynamo cut-corner cabinet, Altoona, PA, USA
« on: October 05, 2011, 06:56:45 pm »
A while ago i had to move and gave away a cabinet to a friend...well, several years went by, they never did anything with it, and now they want it gone.  I don't have room for it, but i told them i'd try to find someone who would want it.

It is a Dynamo Cut-Corner cabinet that is designed for a 25" monitor.  the cabinet is empty.  The coin door is intact, not sure if it has coin mechs or not. 
It has the metal control panel intact, with a 6 button, 2 player street fighter style button layout (the picture below was taken before the other button holes were exposed through the overlay). there are no joysticks or buttons included. As far as I know, there is still a pentium 4 class PC inside it...or at least there was when i gave it to them...i can't guarantee that the pc is still in there.  there is no monitor..
this is basically just a gutted cabinet with coin door.  the monitor glass is intact, as is the puzzle fighter bezel and marquee. there were security bars over the coin doors (in the pic below), but they have been removed



this cabinet is located in Altoona PA, about halfway between Pittsburgh and Harrisburg.  It is free to whoever is willing to come and get it.  If anyone is interested, let me know and i will get you my friend's contact info.

I haven't seen the cabinet in a few years, that pic was taken the day i bought it.  I know it has set unused for 3 years or so inside in a climate controlled building.  If you have any questions, or are interested, post here...first come, first served.

Cat not included?  Well, then I'm out.

Honestly though, if I didn't live so far away (near DC) I'd be tempted to get this.

That and my wife would kill me.  Once I move to the philly area and get a big house though.  THEN...THEN...no one will have everything. 

Great grab for anyone in the area.

VERY nice. Did you save the art files for that? I'd sure like to use them for my own Dynamo multi build.
Man, will my cab EVER be finished?

This is where I bought it from,
http://www.arcadeoverlays.com/storefrontprofiles/DeluxeSFItemDetail.aspx?sid=1&sfid=17232&c=390819&i=38422696

I did make some custom size adjustments, they were easy to work with and quality was good.

Someone go get the OP's empty cab.

yeah...the dynamo cabinets are great mame cabinets.  And since they are generic cabinets, you don't have to worry about destroying a classic.  there is plenty of room inside, and there is a tray that pulls out when you drop the control panel, to mount your PCB or computer motherboard to.  it slides right out the front to make it easy to swap out components.  The pic i posted is of the cabinet as it was when i bought it, it is very dirty in that pic, but it cleans up nicely.  It could use a little paint and some TLC, but it is a nice cabinet. If i had room for it, I would take it back, but unless I want to get rid of my showcase cabinet, there is no way i am bringing that into my house.

I hope someone here wants it, i'm sure they will list it on craigslist or put it out on the curb if nobody wants it, i just hope someone here gets it so i know it will not go to waste.

Well, it looks like it is going out to the curb tomorrow...kinda sad that no one wants it, it is a great starter cabinet....if any of you decide you want it, let me know asap, or else it will probably be trashed.

Id love to have it, but I cant drive 8 hours round trip to get it.  Any chance in hell of getting the puzzle fighter marquee? I LOVE that game
